Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development is inviting all football enthusiasts to attend a ‘Fan Zone’ event tonight outside the Recreation Centre at QF main campus. The event marks the first leg of the Champions League Quarter Final tie between FC Barcelona (FCB) and Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). Participants will be able to compete for prizes as they enjoy a variety of fun-filled sporting competitions in a special ‘Fan Zone’ area before watching a screening of the match. The event is open to the public, and spectators will be invited to enter a ‘golden goal’ contest where they attempt to guess the correct time of the first goal scored in the live game. The contestant whose guess is closest to the right answer will win two tickets to Barcelona to watch the second leg of the FCB vs PSG tie live in Camp Nou on April 10. There will also be a number of other giveaways and souvenirs for fans to take home. The game, which will be broadcast on giant screens, will take place at PSG’s iconic Parc des Princes stadium. It has a strong local connection due to PSG’s Qatari ownership and Qatar Foundation’s partnership with FCB. On the evening of the second leg, Qatar Foundation will again set up a fan zone, running a similar programme of competitions before a live screening of the game. This time they get a chance to win two tickets to a Primera Liga match at Camp Nou later in the season.
